Subject: [PATCH] org.el: inline display of attached images in link

* lisp/org.el (org-display-inline-images): inline display of attached
images in link descriptions.

Previously, `org-display-inline-images' only inlined images in link
descriptions when they were explicit "file:" links. This change adds
support for "attachment:" links. E.g.:
